A Pergola is built using vertical posts that support cross beams, rafters or open lattice. The top can be left open or a roof can be added.
Adding a roof to the pergola offers more protection from the weather. The roof can be colorbond, corrugated, clear multiwall, clear corrugated, or a combination of roofing types. Clear roofing offers protection from the elements but permits sunlight to fill the area, whereas using traditional roofing such as colorbond and corrugated roofing will offer more shade and a cooler area, which can be quite appealing in the hot Queensland Summer months.
The other option is to have no roof on the pergola. This will offer dappled shade, and if covered in climbing plants it will offer some protection from rain and other elements. This creates a beautiful natural zone for the garden and home.
